WELCOME TO CHSMPA!

We’re not just Marching Band!  We represent and support ALL CHS music programs: Band, Chorus, Orchestra, Marching Band and Music Technology! Check out our video below:

COLUMBIA HIGH SCHOOL MUSIC PARENTS’ ASSOCIATION’S MISSION is to promote and maintain an enthusiastic interest in all phases of the CHS Music Program and to facilitate and support its activities.

In just the past few years, participation in the various chorus, band, and orchestra ensembles at CHS has grown by 73%, to nearly 600 students! In 2019, South Orange/Maplewood was named as one of the best communities for music education!
